Home/Blog / Will Laser Hair Removal Work for Darker Skin?

Laser hair removal is a popular treatment for women and men who are tired of the maintenance of at-home treatments and seek a long-lasting solution for unwanted hair. With the latest developments in hair removal technology, our patients at CosMedic Skincare can put an end to the constant cycle of shaving or waxing.

Laser hair removal can be performed on virtually any area of the body and provide potentially permanent results. With that in mind, not all hair removal lasers perform with equal effectiveness. With the addition of the Cynosure Elite+ laser, Dr. Jodie Reinertson can successfully treat darker skin types with greater ease. The laser’s dual wavelength technology is able to better-differentiate between the melanin in the skin and the dark pigment of the hair, ultimately allowing the unwanted hair to be permanently removed.

Patients with darker skin types may require multiple laser hair removal treatments to maximize their results; however, the outcomes can relieve individuals of the need to shave or wax for a long time to come.
